 Registration is closed for this event

Financial Sustainability Series – November 2023

Effectively securing and managing financial resources plays a key role in an organization’s ability to achieve its mission in the community and reach its goals. During this Financial Sustainability Series, we will define financial sustainability for non-profits and explore resources and strategies for improving it. Over four sessions, you’ll learn about the scope and strategies for organizational sustainability, reviewing current and past performance, creating a 5-year budget forecast for your organization, making sound financial planning decisions, and identifying strategies for fundraising. You’ll also gain invaluable feedback and connections to other leaders.

This series is designed for people in charge of strategic planning, budgets and community outreach for their organization, such as Executive Directors, Program Managers, or Board Members. This understanding is critical for the usability of the plan that will come out of the series, and for the ability to provide a high level of peer support to others in the group.

Note: It is necessary that those attending will have time to complete some homework between sessions.

All sessions will take place at the Social Enterprise Centre in the large boardroom. (765 Main Street, Winnipeg, MB)

Cost for four sessions (November 15, 22, 29, and December 6 9:00 am - 12:00 pm):
